Visual Foundations: Dot, Line, and Shape

Taught by Professor Carrie Patterson | 22 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Hobby & Leisure Courses

Take a systematic look at the visual elements artists and designers use in their creative work. Start with the dot, an individual point in space. Observe how artists use dots to establish location, form, and value. Continue with the properties and expressive uses of lines and implied lines in art. Finally, discover the principles of shapes, and study positive and negative space.
